It’s not that complicated. Each president has the right to nominate a Justice. They should act like grown ups. Get in a room with the congressional leaders and discuss options. Congress advises, the president nominates, the senate consents. Grow the fuck up. Obama had that right and the GOP took it away. Trump has that right. Clear example how these political games are fucking up our countryYeah, I am trying to ignore your ignorance for the most part.you're not paying attention. I’m not talking about Trump nominating somebody now. I’ve said over and over that he has that right. The game was what happened to Garland and the new precedent that Reps tried to set about nominating justices during an election year.... and then completely flip flopping on it during the next term. Obama should have gotten Garland and Trump should get this pick. We all know this
1. Garland is in the past...let it go.
2. What 'precedence' regarding nominating Judges in an election year' did the GOP set?
The death of Justice Antonin Scalia has forced partisans to become experts on Supreme Court history.www.vox.com
3. Yes, Garland should have gotten his hearings. Sadly, he didn't. Welcome to POLITICS.
And 'for the record, we both know if GBG would have bailed in September 2016 Barry and the Democrats would have broken their collective asses trying to fill the vacancy. Barry even said if one came available that he year he would have.
